Pigeons in November

These pigeons were on the railings of Wilsham Road. The once smart black paint on this section of railings is peeling.

Pigeons are creatures of habit and will congregate at the same place at the same time if they learn that food will be available at that moment. They get scared off by people with cameras trying to get too close.

I did read on the internet that, on Armistice day, the Allied forces had in their service approximately 320,000 pigeons for communication.
